The Inverleith Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a small hotel located near the Botanical Gardens, which is about a 20 minute walk (or a short bus ride) from Princes Street. Our room was a good size with a very grand four-poster bed which was a nice surprise! The shower room was fairly small but that wasn't a big problem for us. The staff were accommodating and helped us out with some change for bus tickets which came in very handy. Breakfast was good, although it would have been nice to have a little bit more variety - perhaps some fruit and pastries. Bear in mind that the hotel is in an old building, so there is no lift and not much in the way of sound insulation between the rooms, though the area itself is very quiet. Also, the check-in time of 3pm is quite late, though we were able to leave our luggage at the hotel in the meantime which was very helpful. All round though, a good affordable choice.

Quick stop over, booked here due to the location suiting my needs. Room was ok for a night wouldn't have wanted to be in there for any longer than that, small and dark as i was below street level. Breakfast was nice in the morning and there was plenty of choice. Staff all pleasant.

We stayed for 2nights it is a lovely hotel and the staff are very helpful Sheree and Wesley were excellent staff, the service was good and there rooms are is a short taxi or bus ride from the centre buses are frequently run, it's next to the botanic gardens, I also recommend the dungeons trip in the centre of the town, the breakfast service was excellent in the hotel plenty of choice and Sheree made our stay delightful.

As a slightly cheaper hotel in this area I think you pay for what you get really! A few minor things like scuffed walls and loose tiles but nothing catastrophic at all. Really quirky little rooms and a nice breakfast. Breakfast isnt worth £10 if you dont have a full English mind! Overall would recommend

Room helped our step count being up 'in the Gods'! Comfy beds. Helpful staff. Great location near the Botanic Gardens. Highly recommend The Orchard nearby for dinner. Had breakfast one day which had lots of options

The hotel was so nice. We received a free upgrade to the Holiday Apartment. It was wonderful to have a nice big space for our two week stay. Sheree the onsite manager was excellent. Full of local knowledge and advice about tours/trips to do.

The hotel management generously donated an over night stay in the four poster room as a raffle prize for a cancer charity. I won this prize and had a very welcome stay and fantastic experience here. We had bubbly waiting in our room when we arrived and breakfast included in the morning. The staff were very helpful and friendly, our room was spotless and comfortable. This hotel has kept the traditional features well and the hotel has a very homely ambiance. We will definitely be returning in the future and I would like to give a big thanks to the staff at the Inverleith hotel for making our stay so memorable.

Me & the boyfriend decided on an impromptu visit to Edinburgh. The hotel we booked was just lovely. The lady was fantastic, friendly and chatty just the way we like it! She made us feel so welcome and at home. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from a bus that can take you through Edinburgh up to the mount for £1.60 I took it before my SO arrived & it was quick! Mainly my boyfriend & I walked because we don't mind a 20 min walk to the city centre or a 25/30 min walk to the royal mile from the hotel. The hotel room was lovely, clean and warm. Breakfast was tasty. We would recommend it to any of you in a heart beat. When we visit Edinburgh again we will come back to the Inverleith hotel definitely. A****

Small but very clean and comfortable room. Excellent service from very helpful staff. Generous well cooked breakfast with plenty of choice. Has become our hotel of choice when we stay in Edinburgh. Very reasonable rates for a city hotel.

As ever lovely breakfast clean rooms lovely place to stay and would come again any day thanks so much Decent sized room pity some of tv channels not working but excellent food and beverages on offer and staff always willing to help
